You really have to jam those plugs into the radio.

The only one I got to work consistently was the cable from RT Systems.

I recently purchased two of these radios, but am having trouble programming them using the purchased cable that interfaces with the radio and ends in a USB cable.  I have tried with both a Windows 10 and a Windows 7 Home pc.  I checked the firmware version and saw that it read: BFB297

I check the devices in Windows 10 and it shows com3 or com4, depending on the USB port and it looks good.

I click on new and then click on the radio tab and put in com1 or com2 or com3 or com4 and always get an error (vendor is Baofeng and UV-5R).

Thanks for any help you can give.
